...just from my experience: PHP is - for different, but mainly technical/historical reasons - very widely spread within web applications, one major reason was/is i.e. the large (because "easy") availability on low cost hosting environments in the past - but the most advantages was/are on the side of the hosting providers.... PHP might be easier to learn then other languages or frameworks, but maintaining large / complex applications / software projects within PHP could be a real mess. We develop nearly any web application with Zope / ZODB since >= 10 years but are a hosting company byself - so we was not bound to PHP as many other internet hosting users in the past. A colleagues company produces very high level expert systems on Perl and Catalyst - requiring high skilled Perl programmers. >From my experience developing within Zope / ZODB (with Python, DTML and/or ZPT) allows very high quality products within very short timeframes and even further maintaining the project is relative ressource efficient - especially compared to PHP. Most web application data structures (i.e. a "simple" web page) fit's much better by a oo object strategy then a relational (RDBMS) one. The major typical ressource hole within typical PHP+SQL web applications or i.e. a CMS solution is the translation of typical data objects into tables and vice versa. Producing i.e. one "simple" CMS page within a PHP-SQL CMS easily could trigger hundreds of SQL requests into many different tables - a significant overhead which has to implemented by developers and handled by the machines. But this is my view onto the issue - just my two cents... cheers, Niels. -- --- Niels Dettenbach Syndicat IT&Internet http://www.syndicat.com/
